Guy Ritchie Says Madonna Is "Retarded"


Maybe the British use the word retarded differently than we do here in the States. I doubt it though. Guy Ritchie gave a very extensive interview to Esquire and it is worth the read. I mean really worth the read. It is one of the better interviews I have read lately.

In the interview Guy discusses bars and Sherlock Holmes and of course Madonna. Not much of the interview is about Madonna but for this post, I will focus on that.

The thing I got from reading his thoughts about Madonna is that he really respects her and her career and also that he is still in love with her, but just couldn't handle living with her anymore.

She's a manifester, if there ever was one," he says. "First-rate manifester. Madonna makes things happen. Put Madonna up against any twenty-three-year-old, she'll outwork them, out dance them, outperform them. The woman is broad."

"And, of course, here you go: I still love her," he says. He takes a breath, drives through a red light. If no one is ahead of him, Guy Ritchie does not typically stop. "But she's retarded, too."

I think he means that in an affectionate way. I think. From reading the entire interview I think this was two very motivated people who butt heads frequently. I think though that Guy can relax and be one of the guys and that Madonna is always on and always driven and won't ever take a step back or admit that she needs to take a step back.

As for the divorce? "You can't tell someone when they're getting divorced that their pain is an illusion," he says. "I'm fucking telling you, I feel it, I've been through that. You have, too. No one can say you don't feel that."

If he didn't love her I don't think there would be pain. I think at the same time though there was relief that it was over which you can see from all the smiles he has had since it ended. Like I said, it is a great interview.

I'm stuck on the part where he drives through a red light.

I love this guy. Almost enough to forgive him for directing her in that horrid movie.

Years ago I saw the two of them interviewed together and she could not get him to say what she wanted him to say. It was funny because she pushed and he wouldn't budge. I thought then she'd finally met her match. I guess even though he loved her and stood up to her at the end of the day, they couldn't be happy. Madonna probably shouldn't be married to anyone.

That title sounds about right.

I think you're right Califblondy.

According to an online Brit slang dictionary (http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/r.htm), "retard" means "A contemptible person. A term usually used by adolescents"

I thought he meant it in a somewhat affectionate way too. My husband calls me retarded sometimes *LOL* and it's totally in a sweet way.

I had read that he was against the first adoption. Probably adopting for the 2nd time is what go to him.

He sure looks happier these days. I bet she is quite the ball breaker.

jbeebs said...

He seems like a cool guy and a great father. But the word retarded makes me cringe.

Who the hell does not stop at red lights? What a jackass. Is he trying to kill somebody?

nancer said...

i can't imagine living with her. i like him. her.....not so much.

I HATE that word. It makes me stop in my tracks when I hear it. I'm disappointed to hear him use it. I think that if anyone knows or loves someone who is mentally challenged they would realize how horrible the word is. To me it is as bad as the n-word.

I'll bet he's a tiger in bed. ROWR!!

Anyone who marries Madonna is the "retarded" one. She does not hide her ambitious and controlling nature at all, so how did he expect to live with her? If he was so "in love" with her, why did he leak their wedding photos? They came our right after their divorce announcement. I think they are both creeps.

It is really good to see a husband being so honest about his ex-wife, instead of the usual hogwash. Tell us more Guy.

Wow, Guy Ritchie just graduated from the Jennifer Aniston school of Media Manipulation. She did the same thing after Brad Pitt dumped her: ran to Vanity Fair(?) - can't remember exactly - and gave the interview that made everyone go, "Awww, pooooor Jennifer! Brand and Angelina are EVIL! What a martyr poor Jennifer is!" Now I'm not defending Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie any more than I'm defending Madonna, but PLEASE don't fall for this sh!t.

Agree with ea73. I can't believe many people are dumb enough to full into his stupid game.

I'm still shocked that the media didn't pick up the fact the this creep runs red lights. Perhaps the press prefers to picture him like this nice, perfect gentleman.

I think we retards need to reclaim the word "retarded!"
Anyone who would use it to refer to someone with a real disability is retarded.
